Residents and businesses of Merton and Sutton are being asked their views on the possibility of extending the Tramlink service.

Working together with Transport for London, different routes have been drawn up which would connect Wimbledon to Sutton town centre, via Morden. The preferred route would run mainly on road between the existing Morden Road tram stop, along Morden Hall Road, St Helier Avenue, up to Rose Hill and on to Sutton town centre.

To view these proposals please visit www.suttonmertontramlink.co.uk, paper copies are also available from Merton Civic Centre

Extension to tramlink proposal

If you wish to comment you can do so online or email your views to suttonmertontramlink@dialoguebydesign.co.uk by Sunday 17th August.

All responses will be used to help inform decisions about how Tramlink could be extended in the future. Both councils are working with design company Dialogue by Design to run an independent consultation and report back on responses to the proposals from residents and businesses across the borough. The full report will be published on submission to TFL and will be available online in the autumn.

Merton Council cabinet member for environmental sustainability and regeneration Councillor Andrew Judge said: “An extension to Tramlink, connecting a significant area of the borough to the major transport hubs of Wimbledon and Sutton could provide quick, easy and clean public transport for many people.”

Drop in sessions are available for those who wish to talk to Council and TFL experts and look through the proposals in more detail:
